I remember being in either 8th, 9th or 10th grade and finding this really cool but strange looking pair of scissors in one of the house bathrooms. I got curious, held them near my eye, and clip! trimmed my eyelashes.
The next day I got complimented by females (students and teachers — probably only two people commented but in a teenage memory everyone was staring) on how nice my eyelashes looked and how jealous girls must be of my mine. In hindsight they were probably being facetious but at the time I was both embarassed and thinking the compliments were real…besides, it got me attention from the ladies!
